Making the pond even more impressive are the Europeans who will also be mixing it up including Swiss national champ Christian Heule, Belgian U23 champ Ben Berden and Zoltan Tisza. But making it more interesting for us here in COMO is that a couple of hometown boys: Missouri State Champion Josh Johnson and Hermann Cross winner Jon Schottler will also be throwing down in the UCI men's elite field.
The women’s elite race will see an equal display of international and national talent through the entries of US national champion Meredith Miller and her teammate, college national cyclocross champion Teal Stestson-Lee and Belgian champion Joyce Vanderbeken.
The women's race begins at 7:30 PM. All details can be found here: www.gatewaycrosscup.com.
